Ardern called it the Covid Election. If it was a horse race you would say the frivolous fraudulent filly beat the tried and true thoroughbred. The win was not unexpected as by ensuring all the others in the race had more hurdles to jump than she did Ardern guaranteed herself the win. By stacking the odds in her favour she won by the length of the race track. She made sure she would be the first and only one out of the starting gates when the gun went off. Everyone else was left in the stalls.
The 2020 election campaign should go down in history as the most appropriated in living memory. By that I mean, through the use of Covid, Ardern took possession of the campaign for her own benefit. With a media wind of gale force intensity behind her, she effectively commandeered the campaign for her own ends. I can’t remember such a blatant in your face attempt to manipulate a campaign as this woman has shamelessly executed.
Looking back it is easy to see what her game was. Right from the start, she saw Covid as the means to implement her Marxist theories. This was her moment to exercise full control over the populous, her chance to mould them into her team of five million. The first thing we were told was that if we didn’t obey her orders up to 80,000 of us would likely die. The classic ploy of an autocrat. The easiest way to get control is through fear. To ensure the fear factor was kept front and centre she instituted her afternoon party political broadcast with her playmate Bloomfield.
The next move was to lock the comrades down. To make the lockdowns work she needed to get the Police on board. The Police, who seem to have become bereft of any independent thinking, just followed orders whether it was lawful or otherwise. To make matters worse they went for the easy targets for harassment such as families sitting quietly on beaches enjoying the sunshine. When it came to gangs at funerals and the like disobeying all the orders they simply became onlookers. This was quite disgraceful behaviour from those employed to uphold the law.
This didn’t worry Ardern though. Not a word of criticism when all was going to plan. Chase families around but let the gangs do what they like. As with the guns, hit the law abiding citizens and ignore those who break the law. Even her own Health Minister was allowed to go on the beach, have a mountain bike ride and move house. That was no doubt permitted as he was part of her oligarchy. Everyone else, apart from going to the supermarket, risked the ire of the police.
New Zealand became pretty much a police state. We were virtually under house arrest. Many businesses could have kept operating. Construction sites where mostly young fit healthy people worked could have kept going. On-site testing could have been introduced. It was only the elderly that needed the most protection. They didn’t get protected and there was no testing. As far as Ardern was concerned you just lock everything and everyone down as per her Marxist instincts. Like all autocrats you don’t worry about the economic effects of your actions, it’s controlling the people that matters.
Ardern managed, by her regular media appearances, to start her election campaign (of fear) in March. She has been able to manipulate it, using Covid, right through to the end of the official campaign. How fortunate, for her, she happened to be only one to get an official campaign launch. Due to her wielding of power nobody else did. What is really disappointing, even mystifying, is the fact that she has managed to pull the wool over the eyes of so many of her two-legged sheep. As the figures, last night have shown literally millions fell for it.
Her last-minute appeal to the undecided voters was in the form of a blackmail and a threat – vote for me or I’m leaving politics. What else does that tell you? It tells me she’s solely in politics for the adulation and the glory. That is the reality of her three years. She couldn’t care less about building houses, getting people out of poverty or anything else. It’s all about the popularity and the adoration. She’s as shallow as a car park puddle. We have a Prime Minister displaying school girl intellect.
This seriously calls into question the psyche of the average Kiwi voter, that they could be so enamoured with a woman who promised so much and delivered so little. If she was running a courier company the parcels wouldn’t even have left the depot. Policies, the economy, none of that seemed to matter. The phone was off the hook. All that seemed to matter was this woman had saved their lives and they were still breathing thanks to her. Their decision may have them wondering in the coming months why their situation is a worsening one.
In my view Ardern brazenly set out, with the help of a compliant and biased media, to steal this election. This time three years hence, her mesmerised flock mightn’t think she’s quite the dag they do now.
